Memorial Hermann opens third Mental Health Crisis Clinic

Memorial Hermann, continuing its effort to help close the behavioral and mental health resource gap in the greater Houston region, recently opened its third and most centrally located Mental Health Crisis Clinic.

The new clinic at 4850 West Bellfort is located in Meyerland’s Meyer Park Shopping Center and joins two other Memorial Hermann Mental Health Crisis Clinics located in Humble and Spring Branch.

The Meyer Park location, like the other clinics, is designed fill these unmet needs by providing rapid access to initial psychiatric services to patients with no immediate access to mental health care.

Services provided by the Mental Health Crisis Clinic can include, but are not limited to:

• Multiple psychosocial assessments and medical history assessments

• Emergency medication administration

• Short-term prescriptions

• Connecting the patient to a more permanent medical home and outpatient psychiatric treatment

• Social services

Memorial Hermann used years of data from the System’s emergency rooms, as well as useful input from law enforcement, personal care homes, consumer representatives, other area psychiatric hospitals, and public and private community behavioral health services providers to identify locations for its clinics. With the third clinic open, Memorial Hermann can provide aroundthe- clock access to mental health services.
